Things you need to consider for a perfect kitchen island

As a homeowner, you’ve probably dreamt of having a versatile kitchen island where you can base all of your kitchen activities. While this feature seems to be a great addition to the heart of your home, many people find it daunting to choose the right one. That’s why we have sorted out a key list of things you should keep in mind when planning your new kitchen island.

Know Its Purpose  

To create a perfect kitchen island, you should first identify its use in your kitchen. Will the island be you main prep area, will it be a service space, what appliances will it house, what level of storage does is need to provide? Try to assess the flow of traffic inside your kitchen, the spaces that will be used the most and what daily tasks you want to make as simple as possible.  

Check space availability  

Installing a kitchen island can save you from the stress of having a cluttered kitchen by offering more storage, workspace and room to move. However, you must evaluate the overall size of your kitchen so you can maximize your space without compromising on function. Our experienced kitchen designers will help to you look at these possible features when planning your layout: 

  1. 1. Custom Cabinetry
    Having custom drawers, pull-out shelves or even under-counter racks to store your kitchen essentials can make your cooking experience more efficient.  
  1. 2. Smart Appliances
    For modern kitchens, appliances like dishwashers, sinks and refrigerators are being incorporated on the kitchen island to save more space.  
  1. 3. Extra Seating Space
    The kitchen can transform it into an entertainment space for your family and guests. If you enjoy hosting celebrations, consider adding extra seating space to accommodate everyone.
